14 Star Wars; The Old Republic has 1 million players

 I've been playing quite some mmo games in my day. Starting in 2002 with EVE Online, Planetside and World of Warcraft i've been in the beta game for a while. When live i played WoW for several years, now retired i spend my days back in the Eve Universe making a living in a huge sandbox where everything could happen to you or the universe. Back in the WoW days that wasn't my worry, raiding and leveling were enough for me.

Although WoW had different servers all of them contained more than 11 million players. To be honest i have no idea when they hit the 1 million mark after the launch, but as of now Star Wars: The Old Republic has it.

The Source is a bit unclear, but USA Today published a list with facts about the game. It reports that the game now has a million active players, who in total created 3.8 million characters. The average playtime is now at 5 hours per day, wich in total makes up for 28 million play hours. In that time a staggering 2 billion enemy's died.

Want to join the Dark Side? Sure, but don't think you're the only one. A slight majority has the overhand in choosing for the Dark side. 550.00 Sith Warriors against 510.00 Jedi Warriors.

Save travels young padawan. May the force be with you!

  1. I played the beta and kinda enjoyed it. It seemed like more of a singleplayer game though and paying monthly for a singleplayer game is something I won't do lol

  3. Had access to the beta and while it was fun it felt like WoW with lasers, I did like the instance system however. Might try it out again when it's become a bit more established.

  5. I actually just got the game yesterday night. Installation took a while, as the whole game is on 3 cds and takes up 16 gigs or so. I played it for about two hours and had to force myself to stop. I Never even got into what I would imagine are the best parts, which come after the prologue.

    If I were to rate the game based on what I have experienced, I would give it a 9/10. If I were to rate the game based on what I think awaits me, it would score a 10.

  6. SWTOR looks very interesting, I'm a long time WoW player and a new EVE player, I enjoy Star Wars and MMO's so it looks like it's right up my alley.
